How long can Verkada cameras retain footage?

What is Verkada’s “adaptive quality” recording approach?

Verkada’s cameras are capable of concurrently recording video in both a regular quality stream and a high quality stream.

The majority of Verkada devices are capable of recording video in standard quality for about 30 days.  Additionally, when Verkada cameras detect motion within the area, the footage is also saved in high resolution to the onboard solid state media.

During the entirety of the retention period, Verkada ensures that the video’s standard quality is preserved.

What happens if the onboard storage for high-quality footage becomes full on a Verkada camera?

If the camera is situated in a location with a lot of action, such as a busy entryway, the storage space reserved for high-quality footage may become full.

If this occurs, the oldest available high-quality video is cycled out to make room for the most recent motion-based content. In such circumstances, the previous film will only be kept in normal quality, even if it is in high motion.

The standard quality video retention is recorded continuously up to the designated retention of 15, 30, 60, 90, 120, or 365 days and is unaffected by motion.

Can Verkada cameras record audio as well as video?

Yes, Verkada cameras have the option to record audio along with the video footage. The audio is stored on the onboard storage along with the video.
